Dan Shapira, Project Manager for JNF UK in Israel, visited some Holocaust survivors to show his support and distribute emergency packs, which include a torch, radio and first-aid kit.
During the visit Dan learnt how challenging the current situation has been as the Survivors explained that they have been reliving the traumas they experienced in the Holocaust.
Also, many live in apartment blocks with no lifts. The shelters are on the ground floor making it impossible for most of the elderly survivors to get to safety during rocket attacks. Many decide to not leave the shelters as a result.
Through our partnership with The Foundation for the Benefit of Holocaust Victims in Israel, JNF UK is ensuring that the needs of thousands of elderly holocaust survivors are being taken care of.
